    I can't recall the last time they had less than 6 on the injury report going into a regular season game.

    Obviously a Pats homer here but it seems that every year the Pats have more injuries than the opposition. Last years' exceptions would be the Colts and the Packers with huge #s on IR.

    For some reason, I thought a player was required to be listed if he was limited in practice?

    Wow, 12 people with the "questionable" designation of the Injury Report?..... How disconcerting. I'm mean, we know how serious that Bill Belichick takes that thing. He would never put someone on that list unless something was seriously wrong with them. :confused:










    Really guys...... This is not our first year watching the Patriots, is it? It's amazing how we still get all ampted up about this thing. Everyone on that list practiced in full pads on Wednesday and Thursday and were present Friday. Yet there they all are....

    Hayneworth (illness)? Wonder what he came down with... or is that just code for "not fully participating because he's kinda fat and out of shape"?

    I know I'm a bit of a homer, but that list could be a lot worse. We'll miss Vollmer a lot if he can't go, and Haynesworth goes without saying, but the rest of list I don't think we'll miss that much on a one game basis.

    Also, Brady not being on the injury report makes me happy! I always imagined his arm flying off or something in the middle of a game due to his "injury." :bricks:

    Questionable is more serious than probable. It means a 50-50 chance of playing. I believe a while back that the league got on BB's case about no more fudging with the injury report, so this might be taken at face value.

    It's a good thing the players can't practice as much anymore or the Pats would be lucky to field a team on game day.

    As an engineer, I'll do a bit of math analysis here...

    Pats need 11 on defense and 11 on offense, plus maybe a kicker gives 23

    53 roster
    -12 questionable
    ====
    41 available

    Have 41, need 23 or so

    We're good to go!

    Let me give you my explanation for this.

    A few years ago, BB listed a player with an injury as "probable" for an away game and then the player didn't even take the trip with the team. BB was questioned by the NFL about this and told them it was a coaches' decision (not related to the injury) to not take the player (a regular starter) on the trip.

    The NFL disagreed with this reasoning and fined BB for listing a player as probable and then not bringing the player on the trip.

    The upshot of this is that the NFL has essentially mandated that coaches' decisions (i.e. whether a coach decides a player should be on the active 46) are a relevant factor in the injury report!

    So, since that time, BB lists all players (particularly for road games) that have an injury that may or may not end up playing due to a coaches' decision. That is, it's not the injury that makes a lot of these players questionable, it's the coaches' decision. But they do have an injury so they need to be listed. But they can't be listed as probable and then a number of them not play without BB risking another fine so they are listed as questionable.

    Bizarre but true. BB is just doing his best to follow the rules the way the NFL office prescribes. :eek:
